Check out this amazing stop motion tear down of the Wii U

We’ve seen the guts of the Wii U torn down by just about everyone under the sun, but it’s never been done as elegantly as it is in this video. YouTuber VSauce has been taking a part several consoles in a series titled, “Fact Surgery”, where facts about the console are presented as it’s torn apart before your very eyes. For example, did you know the Wii U GamePad has a magnometer that uses the Earth’s magnetic field for positioning? Nope? Well now you do, and you can thank Vsauce for that.

The teardown is a great look at the inside of the Wii U, while providing interesting facts as well. Of course, the Wii U isn’t the only console that’s been torn down to date. If you’d like to see a tear down of the original Game Boy, the Xbox One, or the PlayStation 4, they’ve been broken down and given a fact surgery as well. Not too bad!

Thanks to Mark and everyone else who sent this in!

    Amazing… simply amazing

  • bistricky

    Great video ….

    The Wii U Gamepad uses the earth’s magnetic field for positioning …. wow!

    • matthew garcia

      Yeah with a 480p picture lol and no analog triggers. Yup my mind is blown

      • Treehuggerperson

        720p

        • bistricky

          Actually the screen resolution is 854×480. Which ,for me, is perfect for a controller.

          • matthew garcia

            I feel if your gonna do something, do something that’s gonna last a while. That technology is from like 2008. They did the same thing with the original Wii and it came out at the same time as ps3. They stopped support for Wii back in 2012 and ps3 still sales and gets great games. That’s what happens when you make something with old technology

          • bistricky

            Okay …. I have been talking about the controller …. what technology has the PS4 and X1 controllers have that is ‘mind-blowing’, in comparison to the Wii U GamePad ?

          • matthew garcia

            There is nothing mind blowing about those controllers either but they do have analog triggers lol. Ps4 does offer remote play separately as an option on vita and that gives you 1080p. I just feel if Nintendo was gonna make a controller with a screen why not just take that extra step with it and make it a little better.

          • bistricky

            I guess one could do that ….. buy a Vita as an extra controller (in the case of PS4, as a 2nd controller). It wasn’t specifically made for the PS4 like the Wii U GamePad was made for the Wii U … but it is still possible.

            I know I am not going to alter your perception of the Wii U GamePad or the Wii U …. I really like the GamePad and now knowing more about it, I like it even more …. and I can’t wait to use the “Near Field Communication” unit, that is built in the GamePad, when I pick up the first amiibo’s.

            My only real beef with the GamePad is not being able to go to my local store if my GamePad breaks …. but I hope that day never comes.
            Cheers :D

          • matthew garcia

            Still gotta have analog triggers.

          • Keith

            Dude, go back to wanking yourself with them tweezers & stop complaining about the analog triggers.

          • matthew garcia

            Quit following my post I don’t do the gay thing. I hope your ugly ass pregnant wife doesn’t find out about you. Probably not even your kid. I would get a DNA test if I were you lol

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I feel bad for that kid. He/she deserves a more mature father than that. Lol.

          • Alexandre Michaud

            Lol who cares about analog triggers ? Yes thats nice but its just a plus nothing more. The Wii U pro controller doesn’t have that but its still a good controller. Oh and also yeah the PS Vita can have 1080p BUT u have to paid the big price with that, too costly seriously. In terms of quality and economic the Gamepad wins…and anyway I hate the analog sticks on the Vita its tooooo small…even the 3DS have a better analog stick for me.

          • Alexandre Michaud

            And also the PS Vita doesn’t have analog triggers either so ur point is invalid XD

          • Alexandre Michaud
          • matthew garcia

            Analog triggers are there for diverse gamers who play games that analog triggers might make more immersive. Like a racing game. Console controllers aren’t designed around just you and I feel analog triggers help with different types of gamers

          • bistricky

            For interest sake …. what was the last Nintendo controller to have analog triggers?
            Did the GameCube controller? If it does, it might be another reason to buy this controller (beyond having it for Super Smash Bros. 4)

          • matthew garcia

            The GameCube has analog triggers if I remember right.

          • bistricky

            Thank you for your reply Matthew. I tried to learn if the GameCube controller might be an option for Wii U gamers wishing to use a controller with analog triggers (when Nintendo makes available their GameCube controller adapter). From how I read the information … it is an almost yes.

            “The controller features a total of six digital buttons, two analog sticks, a d-pad and two hybrid analog triggers/digital buttons
            ……. The “L” and “R” triggers feature both analog and digital capabilities. Each of these behaves as a typical analog trigger until fully depressed, at which point the button “clicks” to register an additional digital signal. This method effectively serves to provide two functions per button without actually adding two separate physical buttons.” – Wiki

            Cheers :D

          • matthew garcia

            GameCube had a great feeling controller. Worked great with metroid

          • Keith

            Oh I’m sure you’d remember a whole lot seeing how your obviously unable to even satisfy yourself.

          • matthew garcia

            I think your wife’s water just broke. May wanna find someone to deliver that cow

          • Alexandre Michaud

            Ok but u said PS VITA is better when he dont have analog triggers either so whats better then ?

          • matthew garcia

            Depends on what game your playing. If I’m gonna play a shooter or racing game I would choose the ps4. I think Wii u needs more rts strategy type games cuz those would work best on the Wii u controller maybe even rpgs also

          • Alexandre Michaud

            I agree with u but it all depends on the person…for me Im not really playing FPS games bcz I begin to be tired for that genre and the only racing games I like is thoses who dont have a real simulation like Mario Kart or Need for Speed. Grand Turismo not my thing, Forza either.

          • matthew garcia

            They should be there for other types of gamers though especially with a game like project cars coming out for Wii u

          • Alexandre Michaud

            agree

          • Alexandre Michaud

            But hey is there a third party who create a steering wheel for the Wii U ? Cuz thatwould be solving the problem for racing games at least

          • matthew garcia

            Not sure havnt looked into that but I’m gonna look into it. Kinda wish they had flight Sims on consoles to so we can use a badass joystick but that’s always been a pc thing

          • Alexandre Michaud

            ya youre right

          • Keith

            Trust me….that hermaphrodite Matthew Garcia is never right ;-)

          • matthew garcia

            Better then contaminating the world with your offspring

          • YogiGRB

            I don’t know if you knew but there are flightsims out there for the consoles (with flightstick, i have one on my PS3) like for example: Tom clancy H.A.W.K.S. 1 and 2 (where 2 uses the fighterjet style flightstick ), Ace Combat assault horizon and Apache aircombat which i just love so much (helicopter sim whohoo)

          • matthew garcia

            Those are more arcadish. I mean games like flight simulator

          • YogiGRB

            ow you meant like MS flightsimulator … my bad (though Ace combat comes close and flying the helicopters in apache is like flying with my RC helicopters)

          • matthew garcia

            Don’t get me wrong I had ace combat and H.A.W.K on ps3 and they were fun lol

          • YogiGRB

            haha yes they were and H.A.W.K.S. 2 was more fun, plus the flightstickk is with a separate throttle stick.

          • matthew garcia

            Never played hawk 2. I gotta give it a try

          • YogiGRB

            nice, but if your gona do that, please give Apache Air assult a try also (if you manage to get your hands on a copy, searched months for one) that is a learning curve on realistic but so much fun, especially if you may like RC flying helicopters

          • matthew garcia

            Thanks for the advice. If I can find those games I will definitely look into it

          • Keith

            Lettme guess….you’ve had it removed? Yeah, don’t be shy. We all know you did. Nobody except for you would be retarded enough to complain about something as useless as analog triggers. Go back to.your PS4 hole ya troll!!

          • Keith

            What?? Did them tweezers finally tear off your milameter-peter?

          • matthew garcia

            I hope u don’t need government funding to take care of your butt ugly pregnant wife lol

          • Keith

            Go away troll!!

          • matthew garcia

            Why are u so butt hurt on opinions lol. I own both a Wii u and ps4. I paid my money

          • Joseph Oliveira

            Nothing like a 1080p resolution on a small dinky screen with crappy games!

            I bet you don’t see the difference between 720p and 1080p.

          • matthew garcia

            Well when a Wii u controller is 480p you will notice a difference. I have gta vice city on my cell phone and it looks great in hd. I’m using a moga controller with it also so I’m not using the touch screen

          • vexedpython

            ps4 and xbox one are both old tech. consoles will always be outdated from the moment they release but this gen has REALY outdated tech in it compare to pc. but i dont care about that which is why N products to bother me since i play for the game. does it matter that ones slightly older when both are outdated.(it would cost to much to make a console thats up to date)

          • matthew garcia

            All consoles are out of date but I have a feeling with Wii u sales they will be the first to drop out of the race. They will have some great games along the way though

          • Alexandre Michaud

            I agree with vexedpython and what race it is ? What race are u talking about ? There isnt a race for a long time cuz graphically the PC will always have the best graphics and best performances period. So whats the point for the consoles u may ask ? The only point that interesting about them is the games. Simple as that. Theses days the consoles are just here to play games that will be fun, not for the hardware. Thats for that I have a Wii U console with my 3DS and my PC cuz for the rest (PS4 and Xbox One) there are no great games for the moment ( with some exceptions for future releases like Kingdom Hearts 3 or Final Fantasy XV )

          • matthew garcia

            Well Reggie in a previous article said the Wii u was in 2nd place sales wise. So it is in a race

          • Alexandre Michaud

            Yeah u talk about sales race thats different…but anyway thats not because a console have bad sales thats a bad console…see the DreamCast ? Good console bad sales bcz too advanced for his time. U talk about the consoles have old hardware but damn thats not about the hardware anyway thats about games. If u really look for the hardware buy a PC and thats it.

          • matthew garcia

            Nah ps2 had more power and a Dvd player that’s what knocked Sega off the map plus all the great rpgs it had

          • Mike

            More powerful? WHY WOULD I CARE. DVD player? I don’t care if a console has a DVD player. I’m not saying PS2 is a bad console, but why would I buy a GAMING console to play movies?!?! Great RPGs? I’ll give you that, but not every gamer likes RPGs.

          • matthew garcia

            Lol were talking about what knocked dreamcast off were not grading ps2

          • Lorrell

            DC was more powerful than PS2, but the PS2 DVD player is what knocked it out. Smart play by Sony, which didn’t really work the same for blu-ray. Still, they tried!

          • matthew garcia

            Ps2 had higher specs

          • Lorrell

            And no anti-aliasing.

          • matthew garcia

            No game on dreamcast look better then final fantasy 10

          • Lorrell

            Except Shenmue.

          • matthew garcia

            Kingdom hearts looked way better then shemnue lol

          • Lorrell

            I see your Kingdom Hearts and raise you Space Channel 5. :)

          • matthew garcia

            I see your space channel five and raise you to shadow of the collosus lol. This is a cool game were playing lol

          • Lorrell

            Oooh…Jet Grind Radio!

          • matthew garcia

            On dreamcast I really liked skies of Arcadia. I have great memories with that one. Dragon quest 8 on ps2 though was amazing

          • Lorrell

            I agree. All great PS2 games you mentioned, too.

          • matthew garcia

            Dreamcast was a system that had great potential. Nfl2k was way better then Madden also

          • Lorrell

            Preach it, Brother Garcia!

          • matthew garcia

            Well it’s true lol

          • Lorrell

            Agreed.

          • matthew garcia

            The 1st dreamcast game I had was ready 2 rumble boxing cuz it came with it but after that I had got resident evil code veronica and grandia 2. Damn man my mind was blown at that tim

          • Lorrell

            I had the misfortune of purchasing Blue Stinger. Haha. RE:CV was amazing.

          • matthew garcia

            Oh man I remember seeing blue stinger as a rental at blockbuster years ago lol. Wow I can’t believe I remember that. Never played it though

          • matthew garcia

            Also star ocean looked way better also

          • Keith

            You tell him chubby. Oh wait, your not apart of Sega nor do you have any solid statistics or resources to back that lie up….douche

          • Keith

            His Mommy would have to buy that Pc for him/her lol

          • Keith

            You shouldn’t even be worthy enough to type Reggie’s name. Now he’s gonna have to go & change it cause your fat PS4 lovin ass just tarnished it.

          • matthew garcia

            Reggie is the one who probably got your girl pregnant lol . You may wanna have a word with him

          • Keith

            Go back to running around in traffic ;-)

          • Keith

            Seriously….stop posting & go back to your PS4 fan boy’s!

          • Keith

            Okay, I agree. My apologies for being a douche. I won’t degrade you & such any longer. I felt kinda bad but I just ran with it. Once again, my sincere apologies.

          • matthew garcia

            It’s all good man. I know we can be civil about this kinda stuff. Ps4 has its problems. It lacks the exclusives that I want and I think the touch pad on the controller is worthless. I praise Nintendo for taking the risks that they do and staying humble to there roots. Trust me when Zelda and x come out my ps4 won’t be touched for a while

          • http://www.instagram.com/flip1982 Flip

            If they put a better screen in wouldn’t you just moan about the cost?

          • matthew garcia

            Ps4 is running away with the lead and cost 150.00 more. People are willing to pay a little more

        • matthew garcia

          Just looked it up it’s 480

          • Keith

            Your weight?? Oh yeah, we believe you chubby. We don’t need to look that up so no worries there ;-)

      • Jeffery02

        480p is more than enough to play Wii games on it without any downscaling. There’s no reason to have more than that. Any other amount may cause scaling issues or graphic lag. No disagreement with the analog triggers though.

        • matthew garcia

          Gotta have those analog triggers man especially for a game like project cars

          • Keith

            Seriously chunk….GET OVER IT!!

          • matthew garcia

            Not as chunky as your girl lol

        • matthew garcia

          Vita remote plays in hd with no problems

          • Jeffery02

            For graphic lag, I was referring to general use and not just Wii mode. And the Vita downscales. You may find no problems with it, but I’ve used it and I noticed the difference. It’s better than the PSP’s remote play, but it would be much better if the Vita itself was HD.

          • uPadWatcher

            The Vitanic is NOT in HD. Get your facts right, Mathers.

          • matthew garcia

            Are you talking about Marshall mathers lol

          • Keith

            No.problems eh?? Then you obviously don’t own a Vita haha

          • Joseph Oliveira

            Ever play the PSX games on Vita? They’re so crappy looking! At least the Virtual Console games on Wii U Controller looks 10x better. Even on my 60″ tv, it looks good.

          • matthew garcia

            I play psx games on my ps4. I have final fantasy 7-9

        • nin-10-doughfan

          yeah like fish scales!:]

      • David

        Games like black ops 2, windwaker, and splinter cell look great on the gamepad. When it comes to small screen size with decent ppi(pixel per square inch) it’s going to look clear and crisp.
        Playstaion vita resulotion is 900×540 with 220 ppi.
        Gamepad is 854×480 with 158 ppi both have 16:9 aspect ratio
        Playstation 4+vita=$620-680
        Wiiu+gamepad=$299
        Using the earths magnetic field is freaking awesome!!!

        • matthew garcia

          I rather have the controller as an option. Nobody not even Nintendo hardly utilize. Could have had a Wii u for 200. When I got my Wii u I paid 350.00. Not sure whether I paid more for the controller or console

          • David

            You’re missing the point. Vita games are subhd and a lot of them are upscales to 720×408. No matter what you say it’s still a lot of money to remote play with ps4 and vita.
            The gamepad looks great and is more comfortable then playing with the vita.

          • matthew garcia

            I think it’s more comfortable to but hasn’t done Wii u any favors in the game development process. I understand Nintendo trying to be unique and innovative but I feel this great idea backfired on them. Wii u is selling alot worse then even GameCube

          • David

            Sales are starting to pick up and there are more positive media about the wii u.
            Besides lack of advertising. It was the negative media exposure that damaged the wiiu. People still to listen to what EA and some other arrogant developers had to say.
            Kids and adults these day are programmed to think more power means a better experience. Yet I still get the same experience of my $1000 pc that I can max any game out as I do playing my GameCube. Which is joy. It’s a joy to play both. I bought the wii u to get different experience. Despite its physic flaws I loved zombiu and it would not be the same experience without the gamepad. Same with splinter cell, the wonderful 101 and deus ex. With call of duty I don’t ever want to go back to playing splint screen with friend. EVER!
            The new games that are coming out in the near future look fantastic.
            Bayonetta 2 uses the gamepad as well it flows nicely.
            I can only imagine what star fox and metroid will be like.

          • matthew garcia

            Hey I purchased a Wii u also and a ps4 and I am not afraid to be critical of my purchases. I say people should play what makes them happy but that doesn’t mean there isn’t something wrong with the product. There is a reason Wii u is selling way worse then Wii.

          • David

            Once again you missed my point.

          • 2Макс2

            You say “the same experience” as it is something bad)) I wouldn’t mind wii u to be wii + HD. As a matter of fact I was hoping the new kinect would be made by N (that dance central are awesome for the parties, the whole body is monitored, not just those old wiimotes alone). But we have got a tablet controller(( Off-TV gaming is cool, but overall the “new experience” a little bit…ugh.. dissapointing.

          • David

            I’ve been gaming for about thirty years. It’s nice to have a breath of fresh air. I don’t think it was disappointing. Especially with the games I’ve mentioned. To be honest the wii remotes were more disappointing to me. They work great for fps games and a few of the other nintendo games but not all of them. The gamepad has soooo much potential. Pikmin 3 showed a cool way of using both at the same time which would make multitasking rts at home on the console. I like the fact there is less clutter on the screen.
            Can you imagine how cool mech warrior game would be like on the system?!
            Let me ask you, what games do you have and played?

          • 2Макс2

            As a matter of fact i’ve bought wiiu for casual games at the first place, i’m not really interested in rts. i DO like sports club (but i want more motion freedom there), MK8, side-scrollers like child of light, rayman; mario 3dw was quite normal. For all these games gamepad is almost useless.
            Gamepad was really nice in nes remix and game&wario (especially in drawing competitions).

            PS as for kinect: i know there are problems, i meant that i was hoping to get a controllerless game control;)

          • Rich Garriques

            you don’t get it stupid , the media was being negative about wii u since day 1 and devs and gaming media outlets aka (ign , gamespot ) have been fueling it even more , people like you don’t make things better either , notice how no negatives have been spewed about ps4 whatsoever. the media just likes to downplay anything that to doesn’t connect to its trends. which is more power equals better. don’t be a sheep or a slave , games were a million times better then they are now back in the day. all the industry did today was make games with gorgeous graphics and hardly any substance.

          • Keith

            Don’t bother….that fatty Mathew Garcia is a HUGE PS4 Fan Boy. Talks trash about the Wii U here & about the Wii U on his PS4 forum’s….just let the 480lbs virgin be ;-)

          • matthew garcia

            I’m never on ps4 forums lol. Lol in your picture you can’t even get your arms all the way around your whore lol

          • SolarShane13

            Not a sheep? Of course the person is “talking trash”, a troll, a basher, etc.

            I know the flaws of the Wii U but because I don’t say stuff like “OMG THE BEST CONSOLE EVER NINTENDO CAN DO NO WRONG” I’m a troll, basher, trash talker, etc.

            That insult at the end just lost you all credibility too.

          • Keith

            Wii pray we’ll never hear from U again ;-)

          • matthew garcia

            We pray your wife gets a facial

          • Keith

            And bothered by me?? I don’t expect you to be. Troll’s will be troll’s & forgive me for being the only one who’ll say something about your constant Wii U bashing & PS4 supporting. Word of advice: Go make yourself some dinner (McDonalds), go have your dessert (Baskins & Robins), step on the scale to see if you’ve accomplished weighing over 500lbs & then do your nightly routine by wanking your mini me with a very, very tiny set of tweezers. Afterwards, if you still feel like you need to troll….go back to running in traffic ;-)

            Just lets everyone know who is the sensitive one around here lol. Just video games dude don’t have to bitch about. I can tell me posting on Wii u daily really annoys the hell out of you

          • Keith

            Yeah….wait, why are you pissed?? We both know your mommy’s the one who “got” that Wii U for you. Nobody wants to hire a 480lbs virgin.

          • matthew garcia

            Lol you look like your from a 3rd world country. You should try to cross the border and come to the u.s. while you can. Will better for you and your ugly, fat, loose wife.

          • http://ejercitogeek.net/ Mercurio2054

            sorry, what? im form the 3dr world . . . what’s the fucking problem! ?

            @Keith and what heppen if he is fat or no?
            if he’s wrong or is a ps4 fanboy is a thing but stop trolling him.

          • matthew garcia

            Me to my family is from Mexico. No need to cry dude

          • http://ejercitogeek.net/ Mercurio2054

            nop

          • SolarShane13

            Exactly. What’s worse is that the GP is required even when playing with another controller. GP dies? “please make sure the GP is on. If the batteries are dead, please charge the GP”. You can’t continue playing unless you plugin the GP and turn it back on.

        • vexedpython

          also just because vita can do some of the things the gamepad can do does not mean devs will use it for that. yes off screen play it can do but what about second screen aspect? are devs allowing you to control your ps4 games with the vita and letting you manage your inventory or use its gyroscope for camra control? I don’t think they are but I don’t own a ps4 + vita

      • Krzysztof

        How about 16ms latency. Show me any wireless streaming which is quicker than that.

        • matthew garcia

          Probably my HTC one m8 smartphone

          • Krzysztof

            I highly doubt it. Chromecast and media link have even worst latency than Apple TV which BTW is rubbish in terms of gaming (unless you play turn based games). The closest to Wii U is WiDi, but you can clearly see a delay, even with the latest version.

          • matthew garcia

            Honestly it’s not that impressive of technology. The controller probably cost more to make then the console

          • vexedpython

            then don’t buy one. no one is making you. I love my gamepad and am impressed with it. in fact its the main reason I got a wii u as I skiped the wii.

          • matthew garcia

            I already own a Wii u. Trust me when Zelda and x come out I will be on it all day

          • Keith

            We both know your fat ass still has your mommy’s old RAZR.

          • Keith

            Well I’m sorry you think my wife is ugly. But I expect that coming from someone who prefers pecker inatead of a panocha ;-)

          • matthew garcia

            Oh cool your Hispanic like me lol. I love panocha lol. My girlfriend is white though. Look I try to keep all my post at just a gaming conversation, I never degrade anybody or insult anybody unless they insult me first. You may not like what I say but I never use harsh words to criticize anyby. You just came at me the wrong way. I hope your child is born healthy and that everything goes well with your family

        • vexedpython

          agreed I use steam in home streaming to play some pc games of my laptop that run on my desktop and the main draw back is the lag. its playable but nothing even close to the wii u gamepad

      • Officer Raichu

        Why the hate it still is a very useful controller IMO I use it for every game I use off TV play a lot so stop hating seriously you keep hating everything that nintendo does and yes I know we need balance instead of all the hate plus it looks fine ;)

        • Officer Raichu

          Lol this is my back up account(in case I forget my old password)

        • matthew garcia

          I never said I hated it. It’s just a little undercooked in my opinion lol

          • Keith

            You don’t have to say you hate it….your response’s say it for ya tubby ;-)

          • matthew garcia

            Could u find the hole when you first had sex with your fat ass girl lol. There a lot a fat searching going on there

          • matthew garcia

            Wow your wife is waaaaay bigger then you are. Your so tiny compared to her in your photo. That has to be embarrassing for you. You look like your about 5 foot tall lol

          • Keith

            Haha wife jokes, lame response titties. Your obviously just a kid who, living at mommy’s who thinks he’s a bad @$$ cause mommy will kiss away his boo-boo’s. Gtf outta here fool. Look at everyone who replied to you. Your an unwanted 480lbs hermaphrodite PS4 lovin troll.

          • matthew garcia

            Lol havnt got kicked off yet I must be doing something right. I’ll be sticking around for a while. I like this website. Full of different opinions. You seem to be the one who is effected the most by my comments cuz nobody has ever tried to really put me down like that but you. Sorry if I hurt your feelings about your favorite console.Oh and about the wife there not jokes there true. The evidence is in the photo.

        • matthew garcia

          There is a lot to love and hate about Nintendo.

      • Keith

        Another Wii U hatin comment from the world’s oldest living virgin. I can’t even concider you being into beastiality….it’d just be insulting to them!!

        • matthew garcia

          Dude if that’s your girl in that picture I feel bad for you. She is ugly as shit man

      • Michael Hancock

        As if the Xbox controller were a paragon. Sometimes instant, rigid pressure whilst gaming is what is necessary. As opposed to spring resistant triggers. Thanks, but I like my controllers without triggers.

      • Rich Garriques

        yeah like hd display matters on a 6.2 inch screen , how much brain cells do you have? , and are you aware the system sends a 1080p signal to the gamepad? , guess not , btw to even see the difference in hd you would have to have 32 for 720p and 40 and higher for 1080p so no sense in this argument. and analog triggers are not better then digital its a matter of preference only idiots argue over that. analog is force feed back and digital is 0-1.

        • matthew garcia

          Cell phones have smaller screens and display in 1080p. They look amazing. Also analog triggers are pressurized so if your playing a racing game the more you push the trigger the faster the car goes. No need to pissed and throw a tantrum and insult people lol. Don’t cry man

        • Merry_Blind

          Actually, it’s all a matter of ratio between screen size, resolution, and distance. The belief that you need a screen bigger than XYZ to see the difference between 720p and 1080p is just complete bullshit spread by morons (no offense ;) ).

          Personally, I’m fine with the GamePad’s 480p resolution, though I do think 540p or 720p would have been more appropriate for that size. Actually, if the Wii U had been a tiny bit more powerful and would have been able to handle 1080p in more games, 540p would have been PERFECT for the GamePad, since it would have downscaled 1080p 2:1 perfectly. Now it’s either 720p or 1080p > 480p, which is just weird.

          Here’s a graph for you to explain better my 1st paragraph:

  • cory mccallister

    i knew the wii u was amazing but this is just *mindblown*

  • Potemkin

    This was mentioned yesterday at Kotaku…

  • iamserious

    Was nice and all but it didn’t mention the CPU or the eDRAM on board. Nor the custom GPU and the legacy chips that add to the fact it is backwards compatible.

  • Ducked

    Great video! They should make a Wii U game that has every NES game on it.

    • Keith

      Agreed

  • Iflywright

    Great video, I got sucked into watching three other of them.

  • Sdudyoy

    These guys do this for lots of consoles, but this one was interesting.

  • bistricky

    I always like this recent picture …. the Wii U on the road (in this case, in an airport).
    I recently did the same on my trip to Washington State (no picture through). XD

    The magnometer was revealed when the Gamepad was by Nintendo. It gives the gamepad a total of 9 degrees of freedom and is part of what allows it to do theWii U Panorama View thing so smoothly. It was just forgotten about because it wasn’t explained what it was for.

  • Prizm

    Well that was a bit lame. They could’ve at least pointed out processor, audio chip, ram location etc.

  • SolarShane13

    How do I disable the comments on here? The comments are just pathetic. Your not a Nintendo sheep? Then your a troll, trash talker, basher, etc, etc.

    • newtonyic

      i’m going to be harsh on this one……psychologicaly yes.people who are exposed to a so called hardcore enviroment will eventualy develop a assholed mentality.here comes the so heard cods fanatics,mature-rated centerd trolls,etc… but a calm heart and mind will not diminish others if they have flaws.here is a backfire.also fanatics of the other side will say nintendo is better,it has this,this,and this.but we must face a truth.we have flaws.personally i dont care i would enjoy both sony and nintendo.im an otaku.also give microsoft the chance of get there with us.you have to have respect for others,developers,thirdparty companties,firsts.indies..so on.
      it all comes down to this,when we are kids we are sponges,we absorb anything,and our first beliefs,lessons,mindsets,are developed.some of us kids were exposed to mature gaming,next gen systems…..like me,i played shadowman,perfect dark,nightmare creatures,and others.but i also expirienced games like ocarina of time,majora’s mask,banjo kazooie,mario 64,pokemon,final fantasy. these are the games that shaped my childhood,and will always be faithful to them. i like call of duty,mass effect,tripple a games. so i don’t mind them.so to each his own.and let others try out or not other genres,expirience them. feel them. so casual and hardcore,or both whatever your nich.
      now here is a personal example of what i consider a combination of casual and hardcore. new super mario u,or luigi u….its a platformer,yeah yeah its mario you might say.but what i see is beauty,art,fun. and i say who the heck will complete all star coins,beat all challenges,insane challenges,best out time,beat your friends’s record,i would not think a casual gamer would do that. tomodachy life….the quirkiest of quierkiest of games,the epitome of hilerious random parody though its not a parody of anything…..so to each his own.

      • Keith

        Snoooooore

      • Keith

        Technically you made a great point. It’s just that your paragraph’s are way too long, grammar is brutal to read & it kinda forces us to skim through it. But other than that, I agree with your statements….even if they are aimed at me ;-)

  • newtonyic

    i enjoy my wii u.love it,treasure it.if i had a ps4 would do the same. they might have differences but id enjoy both.don’t complain.regardless of power differences,they both will eventually have their own flaws. lagging,lack of resolution,low framerate,etc…

  • newtonyic

    yes sorry. i cant write well.i suck at grammar monstrously.

  • 16BITDAVE

    Pretty cool. I’m a fan of stop animation
